Overnight Open Thread for Wednesday, 2-20-2013

Welp! Looks like it's fallen to me to weave together another puerile tapestry of the sophomoric and spectacular for the viewing pleasure of the Moron Horde. Not that it's an especially unpleasant task, mind you. It's actually kind of refreshing for a person of my refined tastes and sensibilities to rub elbows with the hoi-polloi from time to time. It helps to keep me grounded, you see. Otherwise, I'd be missing out on all the latest internet crazes like Rick-Rolling and ICQ.

Finding material to share on the ONT is more difficult than one might imagine. After all, the Horde is a diverse and eclectic bunch, rather more hep to the internet scene than your typical group of blog commenters. Odds are, even if you do find something humorous or intriguing, a fairly large contingent has seen it before. But, no matter how erudite a person might be, it's impossible for them to have seen everything. That's why I like to use compilations of extraordinary video clips cobbled together from multiple sources. The one below, for example, contains a few clips that I'd already seen in addition to some that caused my reproductive organs to seek shelter inside my torso -- an unambiguous indicator of high quality entertainment.

Unfortunately, given the hectic pace of life and access to content at the click of a mouse button, the average person's attention span has been shortened to such a degree that a ten-minute video seems to last an eternity. So, while technology has advanced to the point where full-length feature films can be downloaded and watched without the slightest hiccup, fewer and fewer of us are capable of taking in such fare in one sitting. Ironically enough, as technology enables us to consume richer, higher-quality entertainment with greater ease every day, one of the oldest mainstays of web content remains stubbornly popular: The animated gif.



While often crowd-pleasing, mindless entertainment, animated gif's aren't just the cotton candy of web content. In fact, they've reached the level of art to such a degree that some people have taken to creating them using outrageously expensive equipment like Hasselblad digital medium format cameras. Of course, using such equipment requires one to create something a little more polished in nature than the above example.



Unfortunately, not all of us have access to such highfalutin gadgetry, nor the technical wherewithal to create such content. It's one thing to be able to navigate one's way around the internet using a browser, or illegally download copyrighted material from torrents and file-sharing applications. Creating animated gif's does require a degree of tech-savvy well beyond that of the typical web surfer. But there's no law saying a person has to operate on the cutting edge of technology in order to share his artistic talents with the world. In fact, given a little talent, great art can be created using the most rudimentary drawing software available on any modern computer. And there are tutorials to help you do that.



Obviously, talent takes all manner of forms. I, for example, struggle to draw stick horses. I just don't have the knack for it. But, I do have some degree of writing talent and enjoy photography as a hobby -- sometimes making a buck or two in the process. I'm even somewhat musically inclined if the folks in the crowd on karaoke night are to be believed. Admittedly, I don't sing nearly well enough to record myself and post the results on YouTube for the world to see. But, thanks to such video sharing sites, people who do have great musical talent are able to do so, and all our lives are enriched as a consequence.


Take the fellow in the video below, for example:



Maybe your talent lies outside the strictly creative arts. Even though you may not be able to produce something tangible as a piece of music or a funny or evocative animated gif to share with the world, it doesn't mean you don't have a marketable skill. There is, after all, a great deal to be said for the power of observation. The ability to recognize the fascinating details of the world around us that often escape our attention in our busy daily lives is a gift unto itself. With an eye for such details, a person can take what to others may seem like nothing more than a simple piece of lumber and show us something entirely different -- a cat, for instance.



That's the great thing about the internet. No matter how obscure a person's talents may be, there is a forum in which they can be showcased before an appreciative audience. Maybe your talents lie somewhat outside the mainstream and the average person can't really appreciate them. Not to worry. The virtually innumerable array of resources available on the web practically guarantees you'll eventually find an appreciative audience given time and a little diligence. And, with a little luck and good timing, you could very well end up creating something that has far greater mass appeal than you ever imagined in your wildest dreams.



So, don't let the fact that no one seems to understand your creative talents stop you from pursuing them. More often than not, what keeps such gifts from being recognized for what they are is a simple matter of exposure. Many great artists and creative types throughout human history have languished in obscurity because their works never found the right audience. But, thanks to the advent of the internet, we all now have resources to help us actively seek out that audience with far greater ease than at any time in human history.

2 Gender Democracy

While perusing blogger extraordinaire zombie’s recent photo journalistic essay concerning the “1 Billion Rising” rally/protest in San Francisco, a photo of a woman holding a sign demanding “gender democracy.” Just what is “gender democracy”? It turns out that it has a lot to do with how the Progressive left defines “democracy.” It turns out that for them, “democracy” is only tangentially related to how a government is chosen, or even with voting!

69 Looks like PJ Media have gone to the registered commenter system. It was the only one aside from the HQ that didn't require registration.

They also dumped all of their old comments. Which really sucked because there was some good stuff there.

The problem with registering commentators, it that not everyone can remember every single login to every single sight they would like to comment on.

Alternatives lid Disqus just plains suck... and can we trust what they will do with all the information? Are they owned by a leftist and being used for data mining to feed Narwhal 2.0?

87 So, don't let the fact that no one seems to understand your creative talents stop you from pursuing them.

I was talking to a woman at work the other day and she mentioned her interest in "art quilts." I'd never heard the term, so I asked her to tell me about it. She showed me pictures from her phone of some of her work. Absolutely stunning works of art. These are free-form art works expressed in frickin' QUILTS.

"How long does it take for you to produce one of your quilts?"

"Usually, about two years."

"What do you do with them?"

"I give them to friends."

90 recap of today:

Ace was cranky. Ace made joke.

Someone "recontextualized" Ace's joke.

Ace took exception to it and used it as an excuse to vent, as he does from time to time.

I made a lot of inane comments.

Jeff B said some dumb shit.

Vic grumbled.

And the usual grab-ass in the comments by the usual suspects.

I appreciate the start small and move on to bigger things but - if you are planning to get something bigger you may as well get the one you want now and grow into it, especially in light of everyone wanting to ban and or confiscate everything.

if you want get a .22lr later and use it to fine tune your skills in a more cost efficient manner.

The cost of educating my class was probably in the range of a few hundred bucks per year. Yet, somehow, I can read and write and 'rithmetic way better than college graduates of today. I was under the impression that more money = better education? And I know I speak for everyone here, since I enjoy the fact that y'all aren't illiterate.

159 Gun question! Looking to start small and cheap with 22 LR - pistol or rifle? Model?

As far as a cheap .22LR pistol goes, I've been very pleased with my Phoenix Arms HP22. It comes stock with a 3" barrel, they offer a 5" barrel as well (get both barrels).

You should be able to get the pistol for around $125-ish; Phoenix offers what they call a "range kit" of the 5" barrel and an extra magazine for $45-ish, and a holster for $10.

For less than $200, you can get a nice little "7-11 gun" (for those of us who remember KdT), and a nifty little (easily concealable) carry rig.

I started older granddaughter with a .22 pistol. IMHO, they are perfect for beginners, no perceptible recoil to worry about so you can concentrate them on safe handling until it becomes ingrained in them.

Lots of time to grow into the bigger calibers. Even now, I use the .22 to stay sharp without going broke.

posted by EC

I just go in my basement and grab some.....or open the gun safe and grab some..... or open the closet and grab some.....got a shit ton of .22 bricks and other stuff. Bought it all at really nice prices too.... comparatively speaking...

Sorry. Had to say it....

Stopped at a gun store in Indiana couple days ago..... they didn't have any popular calibers of ammo...... things are scarce.... you just gotta hope you hit your favorite store the day they get a shipment in..... it's crazy out there right now...... good luck to you EC on finding what you need.

Either.... we quit chasin... or they quit fightin.... my guess is a bit of both as they KNOW we are leaving...

2. The US Treasury has just released the results of an audit (internal, private) of their Gold holdings stored at the NY Fed. The US (which is supposed to hold the majority of its Gold reserves at the NY Fed) holds a total of 32,021 good delivery bars there according to this audit. Using a calculator...ooops.....the Treasury has inadvertantly admitted that instead of the 'official' 8,133.5 tons reported as Gold reserves, the actual physical Gold stored with the NY Fed is only 466.57 tons. - Sure, reportedly Treasury also holds Gold at Fort Knox, and if multiple prior reports that half the US Gold was held at the NY Fed are true, then +4,000 tons and 466 tons don't equate

But I want to put in a mention for the Remington 597. It's cheaper and more accurate than the Ruger.

Of course, if what you really want is accuracy, go with a bolt-action .22. Think CZ. They're awesome.

218 That's great, a mindful webworker. And coincidentally enough for the past few days I've been watching the DVD set of the last Married With Children season and about half so far are ones I haven't seen because Fox was screwing around with them so much in the last few seasons. There's a documentary about the show out there somewhere about it that's pretty good as I recall.
Posted by: andycanuck at February 20, 2013 10:51 PM (ORGYc)


I remember watching the E! True Hollywood Story about Married... They did say on that how Fox cancelled the show after they were finished filming, so the cast and crew did not know they were filming their last episodes. Total screw job.

This is an interest facet of modern liberalism. Take a term that is generally considered a positive by the majority and slowly turn it into something that has no connection to the original idea.

And then they can accuse their opponents of opposing science, or democracy, or civilization itself.

348 In 2010, the Department of Justice estimated that 25 percent of college women "will be victims of rape or attempted rape before they graduate within a four-year college period." It also noted that women "between the ages of 16 to 24 will experience rape at a rate that's four times higher than the assault rate of all women." And, it said, schools with more than 6,000 students "average one rape per day during the school year.”

So presume this is true for a moment. If 1/4 women are being sexually assaulted in college, and this is roughly 4 times the rate of women out of college, why do we have co-educational colleges? These would be "rape mills" for all intents and purposes, no?

Don't let that scare you since a .45 pistol is large. The mass of the shotgun will take most of the recoil a 410 shotgun is what kids learn on and doesn't kick much more than a bolt 22.

356 I was thinking about the review of the book "Against Autonomy,"
***
If you stop to think about it, the Left is playing the same sort of game here in the US that Yassir Arafat used to play on the world stage.

In public the left talks endlessly about peace, freedom, and human rights. In venues were the average LIV will never hear them though the left focuses on war, submission, and subjugation.

Ah, one wonders for a minute what the current public debate would look like had the left not conquered the media much like Arafit won them over a couple of generations ago.

357 So presume this is true for a moment. If 1/4 women
are being sexually assaulted in college, and this is roughly 4 times the
rate of women out of college, why do we have co-educational colleges?
These would be "rape mills" for all intents and purposes, no?



Posted by: 18-1 at February 20, 2013 11:34 PM

Whatever the number, it's probably much higher than the "official" statistics

One thing that colleges, politicians, law enforcement, and the MSM do in partnership is to keep the folks from knowing the true crime rates in our universities, especially those located in dangerous parts of cities

Going out at night at UCLA can be a risky undertaking, and it's in Westwood, not nearly as dangerous as the area where USC is located

Rutgers was dangerous when my brother went there in the early 70s

I didn't read what he said as saying the GOP is this, or conservatives are that, just that SOME people may sense some moral support for their antipathy to gays in the party.

390 I think about the rape statistics. Either officials and feminist orgs are criminally negligent with regard to a titanic violence problem, or they're lying about the stats which casts doubt on the real reports.

Either way, something is seriously fucking wrong.

I'm all for mandatory training and arming of female students (pending background checks), but we know that won't happen in most places.

I can't imagine abusing another person that way, so I have a hard time imagining what is described.

If we really do have millions of rapists running around, we may inevitably all end up prisoners because our genetic "shit is all fucked up."

There have been many cultures that allowed it, and I find them repellent. Obviously I'm not multicultural enough.

Posted by: Capt. Backfire at February 21, 2013 12:05 AM (mkb9H)

417 Off to read a little James Fitzjames Stephens.

He was a contemporary of John Stewart Mills, and though he agreed with Mills on a lot of stuff, he had a problem with Mills "On Liberty"

I'm reading "On Liberty" and Stephens' "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity" back-to back.

Mills takes on a heavy libertarian/Alister Crowly "Do as though wilt, be the whole of the law" and not only assumes that if people were free to think anything they want that mankind will necissarily improve, but he conflates legal sanction with the moral sanction of society.

Stephen is a good counter-point to that, be simply pointing out that: 1). moral values of those who can make law will be reflected in the law by those same people: 2). By changing the sociatal norms to the ones that Mills think are spiffy, he is imposing his views on others, which conflicts with Mills "only in self-defense" argument of the law; and 3). That man needs restraint to prevent freedom from eating itself, and that by removing all moral sanction on actions that don't directly injure others, the conditions that allow the freedom we have will be destroyed.

Personally, I believe that virtue is necessary, and that the genius of America is that the necessary restraint and virtue has traditionally been held by individual restraint, with far less social restraint necessary, and thus even less restraint by the government.

Oh, well, back after reading a chapter or two...

The people who made 300 want to make it, there have been licensing issues with Reddit since the story was posted and expanded there, Reddit has stated they do not intend to interfere with or stop any part of the movie, Warner Brothers is worried that may change since the Reddit license gives them legal rights over parts of the story.

421 Wiki has some interest discussion on rape in the US. Apparently 25% over a collegiate career as claimed here is a bit high. Other studies put it at 15% or so.

Still even those numbers are quite high. But there is definitely an odd methodology in generating some of these numbers...

According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, the adjusted per-capita victimization rate of rape has declined from about 2.4 per 1000 people (age 12 and above) in 1980 to about 0.4 per 1000 people, a decline of about 85%.[19] But other government surveys, such as the Sexual Victimization of College Women study, critique the NCVS on the basis it includes only those acts perceived as crimes by the victim, and report a higher victimization rate.

[snip]

Drug use, especially alcohol, is frequently involved in rape. In 47% of
rapes, both the victim and the perpetrator had been drinking. In 17%,
only the perpetrator had been. 7% of the time, only the victim had been
drinking. Rapes where neither the victim nor the perpetrator had been
drinking were 29% of all rapes.


Overall though this does point to the pointlessness of feminism in actually resolving issues.

If co-educational colleges are experiencing rape at the levels claimed they should be closed. This shouldn't be just a talking point to feel good about slamming American culture.

Maybe I am reading behind the lines cause I feel frustrated knowing there isn't much we can do even if we had a better Speaker or more seats here or there at times I feel a panic over our "leaders" letting the left run roughshod.

If 25% of women in a place are being raped it fucking well is.

But I think that number is wrong, and you know they won't do it in the kind of high-crime areas where crime is most prevalent because politicians are evil and stupid.

Most of our violent crime could be eliminated by concentrating resources in areas where crime is the worst. Instead they want blanket laws and more control over non-criminals.

437 The heavy wiring is going to the motor ESC's. Each motor wants to have its own speed controller.

But he "freaks" about the sounds of a "Hi-Def" movie, when we turn it up. Flies on tWD, especially, get his attention. Doorbells, Moos, and Horse Whinnies, and it's on!!!

In any "green" option think how efficient in total cost it is. Does the electricity of running pumps 24/7 to do aqua-ponics save you money at the end? Or are the cost of pumps that make it work cost effective? The equipment for any green crap has cost and just like a car a electric that does the same thing as a gas car at $15K will pay for twice the difference in cost over the life of the car.

479 my writeup of Sony's press conference:


Well, Sony's reveal of the PS4 happened. It felt very much like a press conference that you have at the E3 the year before you do the big blowout reveal. Can't say there was really anything that made me sit up and say that's cool outside of the social aspects and 8 gigs of GDDR5 (which makes me fearful of the price as that stuff isn't cheap).


I couldn't help giggle that Sony swiped the Kinect from Microsoft. And hopefully remote play this gen isn't a steaming pile of shit.
Killzone didn't look that hot in the graphics department and gameplay-wise it looked like the same uninspiring crap that filled the other games in the series.


I don't see Capcom hitting the tech demo levels of that Deep Down, it reminded me off all the target renders that Sony used to launch the PS3. That being said, as a fan of Dragon's Dogma, I'm very curious in them going full blown Elder Scrolls clone.


It was interesting in when they finally showed off Watch Dogs on console hardware that it was a horrible mess of screen tearing.


Still don't grasp what it actually was that Media Molecule showed other than a virtual clay sculpting program.


Matt Southern of Evolution Studios shouldn't be in front of people in public, it was like 20 minutes of him acting like he was shitting his pants and what he showed didn't look any better as it reminded me of something you would see as f2p on itunes but it looked really damn early.


Don't under stand why Square flew people out to the show from Japan as all they did was reshow a tech demo and told people to be hyped for them unveiling a new Final Fantasy at E3.


Please God, no more inFamous crap. I hate that series more than I hate Killzone. Though I guess on a positive is that they didn't show anything so hopefully it's better I guess.


Wish I could say anything about The Witness and new Quantic Dream tech but when you bring up the living embodiment of a turd Jonathan Blow and wannabe Hollywood hack David Cage back to back, I WILL tune out.


Yay, Blizzard! Now here is your port of shitty Diablo 3.

506 Only complaint I have with Newegg is the packaging on OEM hard drives. One step up from putting a stamp on the hard drive. Had quite a few DOA drives (usually Seagate) from Newegg. Also had some DOA Hitachi, and to return them to Hitachi required better packaging than I received them in the first place.

507 Guns to children! My youngest is 40 and I would not give her the gun my Mother wanted her to have for any reason!

The guns my Father wanted my ex-squid Son to have, just as soon as I can adjust my schedule to drive back to the east coast.

I will not force on them something they do not want nor are mentally prepared to handle!

Now comes the problem of who gets mine and my wife of 32 years guns when we croak!

508 I very tactfully suggested that the Remington 597
might be a better rifle than the Ruger 10-22, fully expecting to get a
raft of shit about it.



Nobody has attacked me or questioned my manhood or anything.



What the fuck?

Everything I've read about the Ruger 10-22 leads me to believe it's crap. I was looking at something for an Appleseed gun and the only thing the Ruger has going for it is a wooden stock. You have to change the trigger (so it seems, everyone does), you have to install sling swivels, and of course they recommend different sights but that's for all of them. I want a Marlin 795. Nothing at all wrong with the Remington, it's a good gun made by a quality manufacturer.

The older I get, the more I regret every little time I did something dishonest or dishonorable. None of them were worth it -- at any amount. I can't get past feeling shitty about myself about that stuff, and I suffer when I feel that way.
If you are a young person, I suggest you keep your regrets to a minimum now because, at least for me, they keep magnifying as I go along. If you are old enough to know it will never bother you, so be it.

Actually I'm not. Everyone I know who buys one (at last count, three) pays about a hundred more for it than the Marlin goes for and needs to change the trigger right out of the box to get a good trigger feel. Everything I've seen and read about the Ruger tells me the only thing it has going for it is a good advertising department and a hell of an aftermarket. Once you dump another hundred or so into it it's as good as the Marlin is straight out of the box...for only twice the money...

And you are correct. At no time that I haven't been in dire straights. IOW, te good times have I let a bank error in my favor gone uncorrected. Although a couple of times (previously mentioned) I have let it. Closed on a property once, and there was a slightly less than 10k error in my favor from the escrow acct. that I pointed out. Yea, I'm not perfect.

539 535 OSP,

The Win 97s had seen a lot of hard use and the Auto-5 Trench when available was not weatherized for the jungle so much...

the Ithaca 37 only being exposed action wise from below was a godsend during Monsoon season, and gravity fed ejection keeps blur motion from drawing attention to your position....

for some reason no OPFOR we've ever faced has enjoyed the 12 gauge's charms as much as our salesmen have enjoyed giving exposure to said charms.
